Christianity is not a thing to be apologized for. Christianity is the living conscious life and power of the living God, transmitted into the nature of man until, bless God, man's nature is transformed by the living touch, and his very spirit, soul and being is energized and filled by His life. Thus you become indeed, as Christ intended, a veritable Christ.



That startles some people. But the ultimate of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the ultimate of the redemption of the Son of God is to reproduce and make every man - bound by sin and held by sensuousness and enslaved by the flesh - like Himself in deed and in truth, sons of God. Not sons of God on a lower order, but

Yes we are to be, I am to be God’s full child reproduced and made like Jesus in deed and truth in every way like Jesus fully and completely.~ having God's nature.



Paul declared, "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers." What for? "Till we all come...into the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" [Ephesians 4:11-13].


Bless God. Not a limited life, but an unlimited life. The idea of Christ, the idea of God was that every man, through Jesus Christ, through being joined to Him by the Holy Spirit, should be transformed into Christ's perfect image. Glory be to God. Christ within and Christ without. Christ in your spirit, Christ in your soul and Christ's in your body. Not only living His life, but performing His works by the grace of God. That is the gospel of the Son of God,

 

(Me) I can live as Christ and do His works as He lives in me ~ Christ within and Christ without. . . in my spirit, my soul, and my body living His life and performing His deeds by the grace of God.

 


Romans 1:16 (The Message) 
It's news I'm most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God's powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts Him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else! God's way of putting people right shows up in the acts of faith, confirming what Scripture has said all along: "The person in right standing before God by trusting him really lives."

Romans 1:16 (New Living Translation) 
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.



...Beloved, don't you see that Christianity was unselfishness itself. It had no consideration for the selfish individual. The thing held up above everything else in the world, and the only idea worthy of a Christian was that you and I and He Himself might demonstrate to mankind one holy, high beauteous thing, of which the world was deficient, and that was a knowledge of God.


...You may think according to your own conscience, God thinks according to His. God thinks in accordance with the heavenly purity of His own nature. Man thinks in accordance with the degree of purity that his soul realizes. But the ultimate note is in God. The finality is in God.



When men rise up in their souls' aspirations to the place of God's thought, then bless God, the character of Jesus Christ will be evident in their lives, the

  • sweetness of His nature, the
  • Holiness of His character, the
  • beauty of the crowning glory that not only overshadowed Him, but that radiated from Him. Blessed Be God.

   

   And the real life of the real Christian is the inner life, the life of the soul.

 

                                                                                           

Repeated from above:

  • I call you today, beloved, by the grace of God,
  • to that high life, to that holy walk, to that heavenly atmosphere,
  • to that life in God where the grace and Spirit and power of God permeates your whole being.

 

More, where not only your whole being is in subjection, but it flows from your nature as a holy stream of heavenly life to bless other souls everywhere by the grace of God.

(Me)Yes! Yes and yes! This is what I seek Lord!!

Romans 1:16 (The Message) 
It's news I'm most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God's powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else!

This is where the rubber meets the road. If I am in right standing with You, Lord, trusting You, then I am able to truly live ~ doing Your will, fulfilling Your purpose for my life.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
